            Node-less way to generate a CID that matches IPFS-Desktop CID
            Asked 2020-Feb-05 at 20:08

            I'd like to generate a CID (Content identifier) for a file in javascript without having access to an IPFS node or the internet. I've tried using js-multihashing-async to first hash the file and js-cid to generate a CID from the hash but I get a different CID than if I just add the file to ipfs-desktop. It looks like the problem is an IPFS node chunks data and the CID is for the DAG that links the files' chunks. I've tried this library but it doesn't produce the same CID as ipfs-desktop does for the same file. This question is essentially the same as mine but none of the answers give a CID that matches the ipfs-desktop-generated CID.

            ipfs-only-hash is the right module to use to create an IPFS CID from a file or a Buffer, without needing to start an IPFS daemon. For the same input file and the same options, it should produce the same CID.

            This example is from the ipfs-only-hash tests, where it verifies that it hashes the same buffer to the same CID as a js-ipfs node does.

            IPFS Desktop enables most operating systems (Mac, Windows and some Linux flavors) to support protocols including ipfs:// and ipns://. This means that if an app on your computer tries to open a link starting with one of those protocol identifiers (for example, if your web browser encounters a link to ipns://en.wikipedia-on-ipfs.org), it'll automatically open in IPFS Desktop.
